This guide provides direction to school districts and independent school authorities in developing plans to deliver educational opportunities and supports in the context of COVID‑19 by:
- Clarifying provincial expectations
- Providing guidance across a number of key topics
- Including links to additional information and resources to support local decision-making and communications with partners
School districts/authorities are encouraged to review the information in the sections below through a compassionate and trauma-informed leadership lens — one that places people (and their mental and social-emotional well-being) at the centre of planning, and recognizes the importance of meeting students and staff where they are.
